Award-winning author Philip Porter has worked closely with Gordon to produce a two-volume set that covers everything from his early life in South Africa and his ground-breaking Brabham Grand Prix cars to multiple Formula One championships and Le Mans success with McLaren.

The story continues right up to the present day via the pioneering work that’s being done at Gordon Murray Design. With extensive contributions from the man himself and exclusive access to his vast archive of photographs, sketches and technical drawings, this is the definitive account of the life and career of a genuine automotive genius.
